XHackers Team: MVVM & DataBinding, Intro to Game Dev & More!

It’s February, and we’re back with yet another awesome meetup on Mobile Development!

MVVM has been a favorite pattern among developers for building amazing User Interfaces. With XAML & DataBinding support in Xamarin.Forms, it’s easier than ever to build stunning views that automatically synchronizes with the data source changes (ViewModel). We will explore the history of MVVM pattern existence, learn the basics and advance to “Under the hood” techniques so you can build a Framework from scratch or work with existing ViewModels with the native iOS and Android UI.

Mobile games are the dominant app category in the App Stores. Games get more reviews, are downloaded more and make more money than most other apps. Developers using Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS have a wide range of technologies available to them to assist in game development.In this talk, we will discuss some of the most popular cross-platform solutions – CocosSharp, MonoGame and UrhoSharp
